Description
 
Charles Scribner, Jr. (au); Joel R. Gardner (ed). Scribnerís lively & informal memoir of a life spent among writers. He provides an intimate view of a family -- & a family business -- devoted to books & to the characters who produced them: Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, Edmund Wilson, P.D. James, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, James Jones, & Ernest Hemingway. In that era, business was based on close, sometimes stormy, ties between publisher & author. Scribner headed Scribners from 1952 to 1986, & was less interested in preserving traditions than in exploring new intellectual domains, such as through a new kind of reference book publishing, beginning with the monumental Dictionary of Scientific Biography.
